A Crocus-Filled Spring

The carpet of early spring color that Crocus bulbs produce often signals the array of spring blooms to follow. They’re famous for planting in the lawn or naturalizing anywhere you want their bright, early color. Crocus are small (making them easy to plant), fairly inexpensive and come back year after year, making them an extremely popular bulb in all parts of the country.

Create a Spectacular Tulip Show in Containers

The classic, colorful blooms of Tulips in early spring are often the most anticipated event for the enthusiastic gardener. However, many shy away from planting these early-blooming beauties because of hungry deer or limited space. This fall, try planting Tulips in large pots to not only protect them from hungry critters, but to create a spectacular show with little space and worry.

Variety is the Spice of Life

Annuals, Biennials, Perennials…Oh My! When it comes to your garden and what to plant, the options can be overwhelming. This is also what makes gardening so fun. You can be as creative as you want and if you don’t like it, you can change it at any time.
